Evaluation Committee

The Evaluation Committee is a sub-committee of the Executive Board. The Committee was established by the Board following a proposal by the United States, during the thirty‑second Session of the Executive Board in December 1987. At its formation, the purpose of the Committee was to study and report on the evaluation activities of the Fund aimed at drawing, from completed projects, lessons which may be relevant to the improvement of the design, implementation or evaluation of future projects.

Evaluation Committee membership distribution was revised at the sixty‑first Session of the Executive Board, again to fall in line with the new membership distribution of the Executive Board.  It is also now composed of nine Members from the 36 Members on the Executive Board; four Members from List A, two Members from List B and three Members from List C. 

Committee Members are elected by the Executive Board for a three-year term of office.  The Chairmanship of the Evaluation Committee rests permanently between Lists B and C.

The Evaluation Committee meets four times a year, but may hold other sessions as and when required.  Moreover and as decided at the eighty‑third Session of the Executive Board, Executive Board Members who are not Members of the Evaluation Committee may participate in the sessions as observers.
